|Spam Jam - Ryan Kawailani Ozawa|
Lovely Spam, Wonderful Spam! People in Hawaii love their Spam, and consume more of the stuff per capita than any other U.S. state. So of course we celebrate our love of everyone's favorite "mystery meat" with an annual celebration known as the Waikiki Spam Jam. Kalakaua Avenue becomes the center of all things Spam, from dozens of Spam dishes to Spam merchandise to wandering Spam mascots. Music is "Honolulu Shuffle" from The Ukulele Experiment by Kaimoku.
